A Reagan Aide Dies.

Michael Deaver passed away last week. He was an aide to Ronald Reagan and was credited with fashioning many of that President's most iconic moments. These include the Evil Empire and Normandy speeches. He also wrote a great book about his time with the Reagans called A Different Drummer: My Thirty Years with Ronald Reagan. I heartily recommend it.

For more read John Fund's retrospective.
